The gift of education

Help a child to learn. Help to set them free.

You can help give a child the chance to learn, to feel safe and to be protected from exploitation.

When a child grows up in a dangerous place, it can be hard for them to even imagine the possibility of a brighter future. Often, the only hope they have is through the safety of school and a proper education. Your support can help provide the education to set a child free.

Afsana* is ten years old and lives inside Asia’s largest brothel - Daulatdia in Bangladesh.

Her mother was trafficked to the brothel and has worked as a sex worker there for fifteen years. With little education and no money, she can’t yet find a way out for her children. 

Afsana is one of 1,000 children living in Daulatdia, a seedy and dangerous place; no place for a child. Her only sanctuary is the nearby school - a school founded by Save the Children and a local partner in 1997. 

Afsana’s school gives her hope for a brighter future. It has opened her eyes to opportunity. Her school only exists because of the generosity of people like you. 

You can help children living in dangerous places get the education that could set them free.
